Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving, but here at SPJ we're calling it #GivingNewsDay in order to raise funds and awareness for ethical journalism, freedom of the press and the First Amendment.

Show your support by donating to any of the funds detailed below.

Whether you want to defend press freedom, train journalists, inspire the next generation or advocate for an open government, your donation will make a huge impact on the future of journalism.

All donors who give $75 to the Legal Defense Fund will receive a First Amendment T-shirt. Donors who give $110 or more to the LDF will receive two shirts. (Specify your shirt size(s) in the comments field when donating.)

Those who give $110 or more to any fund will receive our special 110th anniversary pin (left). We only made 110 of them, so supplies are limited!
